Oil painting Identification - "Verna" 1940's Nudes

Reply Fri 26 Sep, 2014 12:48 pm
From what I am told, the artist may have been a Cartoonist for either the SF Examiner of SF Chronicle, and the oils are from the 40's. There is a link to the images on my photobucket below. There is a signature if that helps. I am looking to auction these items, so anyone that can help will most likely recieve a nice donation to their paypal account.

The links to the photos are below. The first link has the signature.

The Art market is a real bitch. Even if you know the provenance, and the artist is known, finding out recent auction prices is very hard to find out unless your prepared to pay various art forum's membership fees. (These are very expensive.)

If you've got an auction house nearby it might be an idea to give them a call, see if you can bring it down and have a chat. Do not sell it on ebay, ebay is for buying, not selling art, you'll only get a fraction of what it's worth.

Googling San Francisco, Verna and cartoonist gave me this. If you think it's the same person you might want to contact them.

Thanks for the heartfelt help. I did a ton of Googling and can't find anything that seems right. I will take your suggestion and call a local auction house; that seems to be the best bet. Again, thanks.

Don't be in too much of a hurry to sell it, and don't trust anyone. Ask around first.
